Default Excalibur 40-200 Deluxe Router Table

I have had alot of life changing event happen over the last year that has taken me away from woodworking. As things are now settling down and I am able to get back into the hobby, I started looking for a router table and while searching through my local craigslist ad and came across a Excalibur 40-200 Deluxe Router Table. I have looked in alot of different places and just cant seem to find alot of material on this set up that is not from the manufacture. Here on the forum I can only find an article or two that talks about this product.

If anyone has any knowledge on this product please pass it my way. The table need alot of cleaning, so my next step is to tear it down and clean everything to make it look as close to new as possible. I will post some pictures of everything in the next couple days when I get more time.

This seemed to be a really good find based on price I decided to go ahead and purchase it, it came with a bunch of extras so even if the router table turned out to be a bust the extras would cover my expense.

This is what was included with purchase:
Excalibur 40-200 Deluxe Router Table
Working router (unknown brand)
Freud 12-128 bit (new)
Freud 22-112 bit (new)
Freud 22-115 bit (new)
Freud 32-524 bit (new)
Freud 34-124 bit (new)
Freud 80-104 bit (new)
Freud 80-122 bit (new)
Freud 99-760 bit (new)
Plus about 10 other various bits (used)

Total cost = A steal (based on internet prices)

And the price was...? Found the following. List price was $1,100.

Brief review: https://www.woodmagazine.com/review/...uter-table-kit

More detailed review: https://www.popularwoodworking.com/t...r-table-kit-2/

Review by Mike (Detroit) from the Router Forum: https://www.routerforums.com/general...oor-model.html

Looks like it has a super robuse lift with four threaded posts to change height, most lifts have a single threaded post. Looks like a precision oriented table.

Pix is from one of the reviews.

That's a heck of a deal. I am unfamiliar with that table but reviews are favorable.

Yea, so it was really a no loss situation. I am going to start refurbishing the router, Based on from what I can find it is pretty much complete. Just need to tear it down and clean/lub everything. The table top is what needs the most work (rust) but it all really looks like superficial surface rust.

I had never heard of this router table either and had to look up, after I started talking to the guy about it.

You got one hell of a deal . When I tried ordering one I believe the lift was separate,but it’s been a while .
If in fact it was ,the price would go up to $1500 without the bits

I am not sure if it was sold without the lift on this model, I have watched a couple videos that showed lower models without the lift.
